Hello, I'm Dr. Deb. I'll do my best to help you today.
I'm sorry that your cat was experiencing these symptoms; it must be quite upsetting to see her this way:(
I do have a few additional questions to ask first if you don't mind:
1. How old is she?
2. Does she go outside?
3. Does she have any other symptoms such as weight loss, vomiting, diarrhea, change in thirst/urination or appetite issues?
There may be a slight delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you. Thanks for your patience. Deb
